137 Lavenham Road is an empty property, which has been empty for approximately 14 years. Informal approaches to encourage this ideal family home to be returned to use have been unsuccessful.
Ipswich Borough Council has powers under the Housing Act 1985 to compulsorily purchase the property to facilitate the property being returned to use. The report will request that Executive resolve to make a compulsory purchase order.
